The question “what do you do?” seems so simple, but scientists often find it hard to answer. How can you explain what you are working on without boring the other and start an engaging conversation?

During this interactive talk, you’ll learn how to present your research briefly and comprehensibly to different target audiences.

  • Who is your audience? And, what could possibly interest them?
  • How to engage your audience?
  • How to craft your research-pitch?
  • How to present your pitch?
  • Get feedback on your pitch from your peers

Need an ice-breaker?

This talk can be booked as a stand-alone activity, but is also often booked as an ice breaker during conferences and retreats. All participants leave this talk with their personal pitch. And, due to the interactive nature of the talk, networking between participants starts as we speak.
